“Clean and cheap”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012 via mobile

Andy's guesthouse is perfect if you are looking for a cheap and quiet accommodation.

Pros:
- hot shower (if you pay 100 rupies more)
- clean rooms
- laundry service
- the owners are really nice, they are available to provide you any information; you can also ask them to wake you up early in the morning to see the sunrise if the sky is clear

Cons:
- no wifi
- no heat
- no breakfast

Ps: bring your own towel and toilet paper!!

The cleanest place we stayed in this area of east India. very nice library, feels like you sit in your own living room, cosy feeling.
The place is runned by nice couple. The rate was 600 ruppies per night for double room, which was very good value for money.
When we went on trekking they kept our bags safetly in a locked room.
The main attraction is the rooftop 270 degrees of incredible view to the Himalaya - beautiful sunrises ans sunsets.
Highly recommended.

we stayed in one of the downstairs rooms for 500 rupees a night - clean large room with attached bathroom. For 600 rupees the upstairs rooms have a shower, but the downstairs rooms have a bucket with hot water available in the mornings. The couple who own it were friendly and helpful, and there was an amazing view from the roof top. The laundry service is good too with good rates per item

The guesthouse is opened by a cute, funny old couple, makes you feel at home. rooms are clean and big. it has a comfortable library and a beautiful garden which is maintained by the couple everyday. and the best of all, the guesthouse has a fantastic view point on the roof which you could have a fabulous view of the Kanchenjunga! when you go just remember don't miss the Sonar kitchen near the guesthouse for your breakfast.

I paid Rs 600 per night for a room with two single beds and ensuite bathroom. Rooms are simple but clean and well-kept. There is no TV, WiFi or restaurant on site, but there is a library and reading area. Two minutes' walk down the hill there is Sunam's kitchen which does a great full breakfast for Rs 100, and opposite this is an internet cafe that will give you WiFi for Rs 30 per hour.

The location is great, the owner Mrs Gurung was helpful, I slept well, and you can go up to the roof to get great Darjeeling sunrise views. It was a lovely tranquil place to stay.

Some people report trouble with the hot showers, I did find the hot water pressure to be low but not unusable. Make sure the cylinder in the bathroom is switched on, and don't take ages in the shower! The bathroom was very clean.

For the price I was more than satisfied.

Although most people we met said there were no reservations allowed we did managed to reserve a couple of days in advance over the phone. No reservations for coming back from a trek OR luggage storage though, even though we had stayed there for 3 nights before going!
The owner is friendly and helpful, the place is spotless, and despite it being cold and wet in Darjeeling it was quite cosy. There is a lounge with a good book collection.
The hostel is only about 10 minutes walk from Chowrasta (fountain) and all the main restaurants etc - on the way are loads of cheap street-food places selling momos, parathas etc as well as the brilliant Sonam's Kitchen.
Note - all the rooms are TWIN not double...no double beds. Towels not provided but sheet, blanket and duvet are. Good laundry service.
There were frequent brown-outs so make sure you have torch and candles, and we only had warm water one day out of three.

The price is fair, and Andy's really is clean. There is a large lounge area with quite a few books. There was problems with getting hot water during my stay though. It was not even lukewarm a couple of days.
